30888
A beautiful, spineless relative of the pineapple with lustrous, coppery-red, arching, sword-shaped foliage. If grown in bright light, purple-white flower stalks will emerge throughout the growing season, producing clusters of attractive, inedible red fruits that resemble tiny pineapples. Ideal for containers and tropical mixed borders.
